Please join us February 10th at 11:30 am MST for a presentation with Carl Clark, MD, President and CEO of the Mental Health Center of Denver.
In this presentation titled, Mental Health and Well-Being During COVID, Dr. Carl Clark will cover how this pandemic has affected the mental health of ourselves and those around us. The presentation will look at the psychological effects related to the shutdown, how social isolation is affecting individuals and families, and the growing concern over a second public health crisis of COVID-related mental health concerns.
Dr. Clark will look at the social and emotional aspects of vaccine safety and whether people decide to take the vaccine. He will also cover the impacts on hospitals and health systems as front-line health workers struggle to cope with the stresses and pressures of a COVID-dominated work environment. The presentation will also explore how people cope with stress in both healthy and unhealthy ways and discuss the rise in addictive and violent behavior in the home that we’ve seen during the COVID pandemic.
We know that COVID has taken a toll on our individual, family and workplace well-being. This presentation will provide you with practical suggestions and advice for improving your well-being as our community continues to grapple with the mental health impacts of this pandemic.
